MLB: The Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox have agreed to a trade which sends LP Felix Doubront to the Cubs. In return the Red Sox will receive a low-level prospect after the Rule 5 Draft.
The 2014 Season has been a struggle for Doubront as he was moved to the bullpen after going 2-4 with a 5.19 ERA in only 10 starts. He didn’t...
BOSTON — Felix Doubront just couldn’t put it all together.
Doubront showed flashes of being a reliable pitcher during his time with the Red Sox. Those flashes, however, were accompanied by inexplicable lapses, which eventually led to his demise. Doubront was traded to the Cubs on Wednesday in a deal that was necessary for Boston and worthwhile for Chicago.

Felix Doubront has said openly that he does not appreciate the bullpen role that he has been given by the Red Sox for much of the season.

Theo Epstein knows Felix Doubront. And, this afternoon, his Cubs are apparently trading for the mercurial lefty and his significant up-side. Doubront has been a poorly-performing malcontent this season—after a stellar campaign in 2013. Clearly, the Red Sox have tired of his act and are shipping him to a guy who has favored him for a long time. Stay tuned.
BOSTON — Felix Doubront hasn’t been shy about voicing his frustration. Now, the Red Sox have just as much reason to be frustrated.
Doubront, who is unhappy about pitching out of the bullpen rather than starting, laid a stinker in relief Monday, surrendering six earned runs — he also allowed two inherited runners to score — on six hits and two walks over two thirds of an inning...
A few days after making comments about not being happy in his limited role, Boston Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront didn’t do himself any favors after a tough relief outing in a 14-1 blowout loss at home against the Toronto Blue Jays.
